When our bus rolled into the Dubrovnik bus station lots of people gathered there.
Our accommodation was close to the old town; we got a map and after we couldn’t find the bus which supposed to take us somewhere close to it, we decided to walk there.
Well, it was a LOOONNG walk and it was really warm and our stuff was really heavy so when we realized that Marco Polo is located on a hill and we have to climb a thousand stairs we became a little fretful. But we made it! We were standing at the door when it got opened and a girl invited us inside. She showed us our room; we took a shower and went to explore the city.
The old town is really beautiful (it’s on the World Heritage Sites list)! The main street’s called Placa and it’s lined with shops and cafés. Most of them were being renovated, getting prepared for the new main season.
Sight seeing is easy in Dubrovnik, coz most of the sights are located in the old town e.g. the clock tower, the Rectors Palace (it now houses a museum), the St. Blaise’s Church, the Onofrio Fountain and the Cathedral. You can even take a walk tour around the city walls.
In the evening we set on a bench at the beach, enjoyed the sound of the sea and talked there for hours.
